Get Out Snorkeling
Texas Parks & Wildlife, July 2016
In the fourth century B.C., Aristotle observed sponge divers breathing underwater using hollow reeds. Before that, swimming elephants with upturned trunks led the innovation. In modern times, snorkeling has become a popular leisure activity for families, often at state parks.
With more than 80,000 miles of running streams, crystalline springs as clear as drinking water and 367 miles of coastline, Texas has a lot of room for snorkeling.
